I know a lot of you have noticed the server being slow. Moving servers is always very stressful, and I didn’t realize until now a) how MANY of you read this comic, and b) how poorly optimized my page was. Every single image sends a request off to the server, and I had 50 or so images on the mainpage alone. To try to resolve ths, I changed all the link images to the left into one image with an imagemap. That reduces the file requests by about 20. I’m also gonna change the menu into one image via the same method.

Anyone who has any other ideas on how to reduce server load, let me know. Thanks. :)
